I am quite disappointed with Win 7. Windows Media is one of the things that distinguishes it from past versions, but it sure isn't working for me. For one thing, it always takes an awful long time to react, no matter what I do. I always need to use the taskmaster to close it, because it doesn't respond and even the taskmaster makes several tries. Now the issue at hand is the TV tuner. I have a PCI card installed, connected to the Cable co; the driver is installed, too. And Win 7 installed 'Live TV', downloaded all the channels, etc. But it refuses to play. (However, the software I have for the tuner card accesses the channels with no problem. Go figure. Concerning Internet TV, it gives me after several minutes of pondering some error message saying that the gallery is not available. How weird! Which gallery? Definitely not user-friendly.

Windows Media Center
Thanks for trying, thehappyman, but no matter what I do, I got no luck. I even uninstalled the driver and let the system reinstall it. It plays videos and music fine, but even there it has a hard time accepting my input, like stop, close; it always takes 1 to 3 minutes to respond. The same with the TV program. Changing channels, 1 to 3 minutes to react. Weird... When you first enter Media Center and click on live TV, it returns an error message like all tuners are busy or in use. Then, 2 or 3 minutes later, it has captured the channel and plays it. And finally, there is choppy sound or no sound at all in the tv part. To get out of the live TV takes a lot. It hangs and I have to stop it with the Task Manager. I give up.
I suppose it's because my tv card is analog and old (like from 2004-2005).
